At the British Council, you are not learning English on your own. All our courses are taught by highly qualified, experienced teachers who are best placed to give constructive, individualised feedback and monitor your progress through regular in-class evaluated tasks. 

Some of our teachers

myClass teacher: Rachel


I have been teaching English for 25 years and started teaching in Lisbon in 1993. I have also taught in UK and Turkey. I have a Certificate in Teaching English to Adults and have worked extensively in educational management.

I set up yourTime in Lisbon this year and am very interested in giving students lots of opportunities to speak English outside the classroom.

I love exploring Portugal and am especially fond of the Alentejo countryside and the delicious food!



I have been teaching English since 1999 in Portugal, Spain and in the UK. I have taught students of all ages and want them to enjoy the experience of learning English with me. I have recently just taken on the role of Coordinator for adult courses in Porto!

In what little free time I do have I love watching my beloved Liverpool FC on the television at home. I also love reading, both fiction and non-fiction, catching the odd movie, and playing with my kids.
